7. Meaning of terms. For the purpose of insurance on sugarcane the terms:

(a) “Crop year” notwithstanding section 19(c) of the policy means the period beginning when sugarcane is normally planted and extending through the insurance period and shall be designated by reference to the calendar year in which the sugarcane is normally harvested.

(b) “Harvest” means cutting the cane by manual or mechanical means.

(c) "Insurance unit” in lieu of that portion of the first sentence preceding item (1) of section 19(e) of the policy, the following shall apply: 'Insurance unit' means all the insurable acreage of sugarcane in the county at the time insurance attaches”.

8. Cancellation and termination for indebtedness dates. For each crop year of the contract the cancellation date shall be the July 31, and the termination date for indebtedness shall be the August 31, immediately preceding the beginning of the crop year for which the cancellation or the termination is to become effective. (Amdt. 11, 33 F.R. 8265, June 4, 1968; 33 F.R. 10277, July 18, 1968) § 401.136 The cotton endorsement.

The provisions of the cotton endorsement for the 1969 and succeeding crop years are as follows:

1. Insured crop. The crop insured shall be American Upland lint cotton. Insurance shall not attach on acreage on which it is determined by the Corporation that cotton was (a) planted following in the same year a small grain crop which reached the heading stage, (b) planted on new ground acreage, or (c) planted in excess of the allotment, permitted acreage, or any other acreage limitation established under any program administered by the Secretary of Agriculture but destroyed by natural causes or by the insured and not considered as cotton under the provisions of such program.

2. Annual premium. There will be a reduction in the annual cotton premium for each insurance unit (hereinafter called "unit") of 4 percent for each full hundred acres on the unit: Provided, however, That the total reduction shall not exceed 20 percent.

3. Production guarantee. The production guarantees per acre shown on the county actuarial table (hereinafter called "actuarial table") are progressive as follows: (1) First Stage--after it is too late to plant cotton until the first blooms are shed, (2) Second Stage-after the first blooms are shed and until acreage qualifies for the third stage, or (3) Third Stage-after harvest of at least 20 percent of the pound guarantee per acre for this stage and to the end of the insur

ance period, except that, and notwithstanding section 6(b) of this endorsement or any other provisions of the contract, acreage on which the Corporation determines the cotton crop has been damaged to the extent that normally farmers would not further care for the crop, shall be deemed to have been destroyed at the time of such damage even though the cotton crop on such acreage was further cared for or harvested. The pound guarantee applicable to such acreage shall be that established for the stage reached by the crop at the time of such damage as determined by the Corporation.

4. Insurance period. Insurance on any insured acreage shall attach at the time the cotton is planted, and with respect to any portion of the crop shall cease upon removal from the field, or upon being housed, or upon either disposal or transfer of interest in unharvested cotton after harvest has commenced, but in no event shall insurance remain in effect later than the applicable date set forth below immediately following the beginning of the normal harvest period: Alabama: Randolph, Clay, Talladega,
